But before the models walk the runway, Halloween will arrive and we know it can be tedious and stressful deciding what to wear. How can you find something that is cute, flattering, and original? Photos from 303 Magazine‘s past Denver Fashion Weekends will inspire you to create the look you want for Halloween.
Here is the guide to getting the most amazing, sexy and creative costume that will wow all your friends:
1. Candy Party Favor
Purchase colored cellophane wrap at your local craft or party store. Get enough to fit your bust and flair your tutu. Make this your own by adding color and candy to your outfit. With some fake frosted eyelashes and some pastel mints, you could be the sweetest thing at the party.

Make this your own by getting the iron-on patches from Etsy.com or at your local craft/thrift store. Be sure to get waterproof face paint. Feel free to add a headset or a funky bulbous hat. If you’re not feeling the heels, go for sleek silver moon boots.

3. Foxy Flashback
Dressing up like a foxy vixen can look like a normal outfit, so style up your hair and go big hair or go home. Tease it. Crimp it. Add flowers and glitter, and look up ways for applying make-up retro style.

4. Lost Queen
Find animal-print cloth at your local fabric store and piece it together yourself. You can also pick up colored yarn for the boots, and wooden tribal ornaments for earrings, headbands or masks. Add an arm bracelet and don’t forget the face paint.

5. Gepetto’s Marionettes
If you don’t have a wig, it’s time to invest. Find a wig that is suitable for your style or tease out your hair until it looks like a mane. Mark the hinges of your body with thick lines of water-proof face paint. If you can’t find the tutu you’re looking for, try a DIY with tulle from the fabric store.

6. Wicked Sorceress
Become simply powerful and sultry in this wicked costume. Add a scepter or staff to show everyone your rule and don’t be afraid to get a little unruly.
